Francis Tuthill’s reputation for reliable rally cars was cemented in 1977, when Francis raced the London to Sydney Rally in a fully prepped Volkswagen Beetle.
Francis’ successful raid on Sydney brought enthusiasts from all over the world to the small workshop in Wardington, Oxfordshire where Tuthill built his adventure-focused Volkswagen cars and buses. It wasn’t long until Porsche 356 owners began to call on Francis for help and advice. From the 356 came the 911, creating a legendary association that is now almost four decades old.
Now synonymous with the world’s most successful historic Porsche rally cars, and having worked with rallying’s greatest names (above), the firm also builds winning circuit racers: the Scottish Sports Saloon and FIA Masters Historic champions both run Porsche 911s built by Tuthills. The team currently stands on the threshold of the next generation, as it prepares for the maiden event with a Tuthill-built Porsche 911 GT3 Cup rally car.
The Tuthill Porsche workshops regularly take on complete restoration projects. All aspects of rebuilding are carried out in-house, from engine and transmission builds to rust repair, metal fabrication, roll cage installation and full body & paint. Tuthill also builds bespoke Porsche 911 road cars for discerning drivers in search of something unique from their classic Porsche 911.
